One hour ago I, Belladonna Reynolds, married a werewolf.
I said, “I do” to a man I had fallen head over heels in love with months earlier as the fall leaves were gently covered with snow.
I said “I do” to a man who shifts shape into wolf form.
And I said “I do” to a man who, during the full moon, is half-man, half-beast, and can frighten me as much as he seduces me.
His name is Stephan Severo. He’s close to a hundred years old.
I kissed him to seal our vows. Severo’s kisses are like this: tender whispers of flesh upon flesh; lashes of tongue capable of buckling my knees; deep, delving dances with my soul; an intense, sensual connection I wished not to cease.
He was staring at me now. Eyes like shadowed whiskey owned me. We stood upon the threshold before Severo’s mansion, a home we’ve shared since October. It was April, but I was not cold. I was shivering because I wasnervous. Tonight we were to consummate our vows.
It wouldn’t be the first time we’d made love, but I intended to make it feel like it.
Would he give me the one thing I needed more than air tonight?
